Tom Brady has made even more history with a win at Super Bowl 55. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback sealed his seventh Super Bowl title and in doing so, he adds to his already outstanding record as the most Super Bowl rings from a player, and to make it all the more extraordinary, Brady did so at the age of 43, 19 years after winning his first. Brady also finished as the MVP for the recent 2021 Super Bowl, meaning he has now added to his record of four to be five up and two ahead of the legendary Joe Montana.
However, it's not just the records and unrivalled amount of Super Bowl wins he has that makes him not just the best of all-time in American football, but as one of the greatest athletes of all-time. It's the fact that Brady has won all of this across two decades and at the age of which most athletes struggle not to pull a muscle on a gentle jog.
The ex-New England Patriots man ran the show at the Super Bowl in February. He pulled the strings like he has done all his career and after winning the greatest prize in that sport at 43 and for a record seventh time, it is impossible not to include him on this list.
